Exportadora de Café Condor
Condor del Obispo – Green
|Review Date:||August 1999|
Blind Assessment: A wildly inconsistent coffee. A taste defect, probably ferment, ran intermittently through the sample, popping up here and there with varying degrees of intensity, ruining a sweet, bright, nut-toned cup. Five panelists considered the defect sufficiently pervasive to dismiss the sample. Five more objected more generally, their complaints ranging from "rough" to "unrefined."
Notes: An inconsistent but sweet, bright, nut-toned cup marred by an unrefined taste defect. A private mill coffee exported by Exportadora de Café Condor. From any number of 160 to 200 family farms. From trees of the traditional typica and bourbon varieties grown in full shade at elevations ranging from 4,400 to 6,500 feet.
